"I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn't be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage." - Roald Dahl
Dear parents and guardians, As the year draws to a close, I hope to appeal to you and make sure to throw extra pencils in your child's backpack. Students claim others are stealing them, but in reality, I find them laying around my room and on the floor in the hallways. They need pencils in most if not all of their classes, so please help. I adore this group of young teens, but they still need to be prepared for class and responsible.
Students completed the radio play scripts and selected four plays in each class to produce. The writers of those plays become the directors and the rest of the students are divided into groups to become actors in each production. Each student is responsible for revising and developing their production of the play, so they should be helping the cast revise and edit the play. I reviewed and graded those plays, so groups will also have my feedback.
This week they will work on developing their character's roles by giving that person a voice and personality. I would advise them to enhance their lines to show who they and how they get along with the rest of the characters in the play. Students will practice their roles for a final recording that will be their last big grade of the quarter.
I' am really proud of the creativity they are using this fourth quarter. Please let me know if you have any concerns or questions. Sincerely, Mrs. Becky Leffler GMSS seventh grade language arts email: firstname.lastname@example.org homework portal: lefflerr.weebly.com
